I see we have some senior Western political and military leadership on the forum, greetings

"Sir! The Russians have destroyed our basic infrastructure, killed a generation of men, everybody else is fleeing, what to do?"

"Hmm... im gonna squeeze my eyes together really tight, wish i may, wish i might, Russkies go home tonight!"

Job done.

Morale appears to be high amongst the Russian soldiers in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Well, at least amongst the ones that didn't get shot by the Russian Soldiers in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Yeah, so that happened and nope, not posting that video here.

As I was saying last night, the 58th Russian Army insignia lives on.

The entire command staff posted to Melitopol on December 11th - not so much.

Wow, reports are 1 system to be sent, with several months of training first. Game changer...

$3mil per missile... how much are those washing machine drones again?

Next..

Interesting to hear Germany can't expand ammo production because a key supply of cotton lintners can only be sourced from China (our dirty commie enemy) and they have a 9 month backlog.

But hey, Ukies so mighty all they need are rocks and sticks

13 for 13 intercepted Shahed 136 drones, with it appears, two buildings damaged in Kyiv. One of the downed drones has "For Ryazan" written on it. (The airbase hit early last week with the three fatalities.)

Kievs FM was quoted in the Globe yesterday as saying "The Russians are up to something", similar to the NATO assesment, that they may launch a renewed offensive in Q1 2023.

Makes sense, they are likely waiting to organize their forces and hoping another few million civilians clear the battle zone, off to Germany. Ukraine is desperately short of fuel, ammo and bodies already, and only declining more.

And this time Russia will not *bleep* around with understrength forces. The Ukies can either fight and be killed, or surrendee. But I don't think the Russians want this dragging on much longer.

Ummm... you used the plural, its singular, 1 missile battery is going to Ukraine. I guess it has multiple launchers.

Did ya know the battery radars cost $1 billion, yes, billion each. Hopefully the Russkies dont break it

And, frankly, they're not that good.

Breaking News: Zelensky wants $1 billion

Do you think people on castanet would like to - buy no Christmas presents this year so they could
contribute to the $1 billion Zelensky needs?

I know I would be interested in donating for the war in Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has pleaded for $840 million from his European allies to help tackle Russia's 'energy terrorism' amid harsh winters.

They can print as many euros as they like, but the gas doesn't exist.

People should read about Germany's chemical industry. This is an absolute disaster for Europe.

March: "Pentagon officials will not send the advanced Patriot air-defense system to Ukraine, saying Thursday that US forces would need to enter Ukraine to operate it".

December: "The Biden administration is finalizing plans to send the Patriot missile defense system to Ukraine"

US/NATO Boots on the ground directly fighting Russia.

More escalation.
